It is important that Innovar be injected subcutaneously; the intramuscular route may cause lameness and local necrosis.
NOTE: Innovar-Vet is a veterinary formulation of fentanyl and droperidol. Innovar (no-vet) is a human preparation that also contains fentanyl and droperidol in a less (8X) concentrated form. Please consult with the Veterinarian or Research Facility Coordinator prior to using Innovar-Vet or Innovar in rabbits.
